This beef chop suey recipe is a one-skillet easy meal to prepare for a family of four, and it's packed with delicious Asian flavors from garlic, ginger, beansprouts, and soy sauce. Best part? Only takes 30 minutes to put it on your table.
Heat the butter in the skillet on medium heat until it is melted, then finely chop the onion and celery and cook them until softened. Now finely chop the ginger and garlic and to the skillet, cooking for another 2 minutes.
Once all the ingredients are softened, add the ground beef meat and turn up the heat to medium-high until it is browned. For the brown gravy sauce, stir in the molasses and soy sauce to the skillet mixing thoroughly.
Then mix the 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with water and add it to the ground beef. The cornstarch will act as a thickening agent, and the brown gravy sauce will begin to thicken as you stir.
For an extra beefy flavor, mix in some beef bouillon cubes with the hot water and cornstarch, then add it to the skillet.
If you want to add some spice or extra sweetness to this dish, try adding 1 or 2 finely chopped chilis a touch of black pepper, and a tablespoon of brown sugar.
